Hi there! My name is Thijs Remie and this is what I look like. Well, my wife’s interpretation of it anyway.
This is me. I’m husband of one, father of two , living and working in Amsterdam. I consume large amounts of Betjeman Earl Grey with milk. Preferably from a big ol’ mug, borrowed from the Hampstead Starbucks.
Professionally, I’m head of design at Present Plus, a creative innovations studio founded by Damian and Nalden. We’re the people behind Kuvva, a marketplace for premium illustration, and we make sure you can easily send big files with WeTransfer. We also work for a select group of clients.
Last year, we designed, filmed and built a website for Powerhouse Company, created an interactive installation at art’otel Amsterdam and worked closely with PostNL to outline the future of their customer interfaces.
Currently, my team is continuing their work for PostNL, laying a foundation for streamlined business portals for KPN, and we are working with Christie’s auction house to create a category-defining experience for their e‑commerce platform, set to debut later in 2015.
In the meantime, our London office is shooting a second portrait series of amazing creative people for WeTransfer, the Creative Class.
We are always interested in meeting great talent, whether it’s UX, graphic design, copywriting, motion, video or photography. Please get in touch if you’re interested in joining us.
